New to TVNZ OnDemand in December

TVNZ On Demand will premiere three key exclusives this month while expanding its Kiwi movie and BBC library content.

Unique to the streaming platform will be Why Women Kill (December 6) and Reprisal (December 7)

Why Women Kill is billed as “a darkly comedic drama, detailing the lives of three women living in three different decades: a housewife in the ‘60s, a socialite in the ‘80s and a lawyer in 2019, each dealing with infidelity in their marriages”.

It’s a CBS All Access original from Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry starring Lucy Liu (Elementary) and Ginnifer Goodwin (Once Upon a Time) and Kirby Howell-Baptiste (Barry).

Already renewed for a second season, it’s been streaming in the US since September — where the reviews ranged from “charming and fun” (USA Today) to “an unsatisfying show cobbled together from vignettes whose leaps between storylines leaves good actors stranded” (Variety).

Reprisal is a Hulu drama from StartUp scribe Josh Corbin about the victim of a gang rape who seeks retribution. It will stream here the same day as the US and stars Abigail Spencer (Suits, Timeless).

Also brand new will be New Blood commission Life is Easy (December 12), about two best  friends who wake up in each other’s bodies after their joint 27th birthday bash: she’s Chinese, straight and female; he’s white, gay and male.

Real-life best friends Chye-Ling Huang (AFK, A War Story) and Cole Jenkins (Shortland Street, Westside) star in their own creation.

TVNZ OnDemand also is bringing back seasons 1-3 of Broadchurch (December 9) and three series that aired on Sky: Kingdom (S1-3, December 16); Masters of Sex (S1-4, December 16) and Damages (S1-5, December 16).

On the platform from today are the NZ movies BoyDark HorseHunt for the WilderpeopleTickledThe OratorBorn to DanceFresh Meat, The Pa BoysWhale Rider, Sione’s Wedding and Sione’s 2: Unfinished Business.
